Boolean logic, Basics of digital circuit design


Written examination (60 minutes) without documents. The participants answer understanding questions about methods and tools for the development of integrated circuits, including a block of questions for studying literature. As an examination, a deeper understanding of the performance and the limitations of these methods and tools, as well as the competence to critically reflect on their use should be demonstrated.
